Dear baseball and softball families,
We hope you are all well, healthy, and safe during this unprecedented time.
We would like to announce that we have received approval from the town to resume youth baseball and softball activities in Lunenburg.
Our current plan is to begin practicing after June 15 and prepare for games that we anticipate starting after June 29. The season will last for approximately six weeks into August. Games will be weekdays only.
Below are some of the rules and safety measures we will be following for your review.
• If your child is currently registered, we will be assigning teams soon.
• If your child is not currently registered, we will be opening registrations for the next seven days. Please visit www.lunenburglittleleague.com to sign up.
• If you do not want your child to play under the new rules or schedule, please email us right away.
We will operate under a modified set of rules which will be continually monitored and modified if necessary.
The guidance from Little League is contained in the attached document. This document is updated regularly.
Some of the main rules are:
• Social distancing will be enforced for players, coaches and spectators.
• Catchers to crouch an extra two feet behind the batter.
• Home-plate umpires to stand six feet to the rear of the pitcher’s mound.
• Players and coaches will have assigned spots in dugouts or outside the fence lines where they can socially distance.
• Baseballs and softballs will be sanitized between innings.
• Players and coaches will sanitize their hands between innings.
• Fist bumps and handshakes are forbidden.
• Sharing the same container of water is prohibited.
• Sharing equipment will be prohibited.
• All coaches, volunteers and spectators will be required to wear a mask.
• No player, coach, or spectator shall participate in a Little League activity if they are presenting symptoms of COVID-19.
We are actively working on preparing for play and hope you will join us. We look forward to seeing you soon.
